Northern Elders Ask Buhari To Resign
The call was made by the Director, Publicity and Advocacy of NEF, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed on Tuesday.
According Baba-Ahmed, President Buhari’s administration does not appear to have answers to the security challenges in the country.
He added that Nigerian constitution allows leaders to voluntarily step down if they prove incapable of leading
Baba-Ahmed said, “The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari does not appear to have answers to the challenges of security to which we are exposed. We cannot continue to live and die under the dictates of killers, kidnappers, rapists and sundry criminal groups that have deprived us of our rights to live in peace and security.
“Our constitution has provisions for leaders to voluntarily step down if they are challenged by personal reasons or they prove incapable of leading.
“It is now time for President Buhari to seriously consider that option, since his leadership has proved spectacularly incapable of providing security over Nigerians. Our Forum is aware of the weight of this advice, and it is also aware that we cannot continue to live under these conditions until 2023 when President Buhari’s term ends.”
